CNN At It Again: Allows NRA To Be Vilified as Child Killers

“The NRA has shown themselves to be toxic, vile, and to not support the right to live."

CNN continues to charge the NRA with murdering kids. 

On Wolf Blitzer's program Wednesday night, the left-wing host permitted -- without challenge -- young Parkland, Florida high school shooting survivor Alfonso Caleron to ignorantly accuse the National Rifle Association of "basically killing children."

The naive teenager vilified the nation's most powerful protector of his 2nd Amendment right while waxing philosophic on Dick Sporting Goods' recent decision to no longer sell AR-15-style rifles. The announcement affects Field & Stream locations, the main Dick's stores having stopped carrying the rifles in 2012, immediately following the Newtown, Connecticut mass shooting at an elementary school.

Caleron spoke in no uncertain terms:

“I’m glad that companies, which are what will stop the NRA from doing what they’re doing -- basically killing kids -- the companies are going to be the ones that are going to stop this.”

Since the Florida adolescent believes those in the NRA are murderers because of crimes committed with guns, does he also consider the organization's members to be heroes, deemed as such each time a gun has saved a life or otherwise thwarted crime? That question would have been a logical one for Blitzer to ask; however, the biased anchor was happy to allow Caleron to continue, which he did -- with radical and embarrassing rhetoric:

“The NRA has shown themselves to be toxic, vile, and to not support the right to live, which is in the Preamble of the Constitution.” 

The gullible adolescent may want to re-read the Preamble, which states, rather:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Again, Wolf, made no attempt to correct the teenage gun control advocate.

Caleron persisted with his cringe-worthy failure to make a point:

“I want them to remember they always talk about the Second Amendment, but that Preamble is before it.”

Nice. Caleron is not only a witless pawn of the anti-2nd-Amendment Left; he is also a reminder of the devolved state our current educational system.

As for the announcement by Dick's Sporting Goods, it's really not much of an announcement at all. As pointed out on Twitter:
